I’m a photographer with a dear farmer for a partner, and it only seemed natural to begin documenting the recipes we cooked with all his amazing food. I also love to bake, and while we do not have our own wheat field (yet), I thought they would be a good compliment to the farm food.
Growing up in Vermont, everything my mother made was from scratch, and most of it old French and Italian recipes she’d learned in sojourns abroad as a painter. So the majority of my cooking comes from these roots. I was brought up understanding the connection between the farmer and the table, and still believe this is one of the most important relationships you can have. What we put in our bodies, and how that substance is made (be it food or drink) matters. Over the years, I’ve spent time as a gardener, vegetable farmer, vineyard worker, and consumer of all things delicious. I hope these experiences influence my photographs, and that they tell a story of food grown, cooked, and enjoyed with love.
